Zaino Group Buy - Interested?

Note: This Group Buy Has Ended. Next One ~July.

Hi, folks. Well, I just got off the phone w/Sal Zaino trying to arrange a holiday group purchase. There's good news and bad news:
  • good news: we can do another Group Purchase ("GP")
  • good news: The new ZFX product has just been released
  • bad news: we can't do the GP til January (Zaino doesn't have the additional bandwidth right now due to the new product launch)
In the meantime, I'd like to determine if there's enough interest in another GP @ the beginning of January
(we'd need @ least 20 people, just like last time).

If you're interested, <a href="mailto:[email protected]?subject=zainogp">Click Here to shoot me an email</a> indicating your interest*. When 20+ people have responded (and on January 2) I'll call Sal and get a GP code, then will email you the code w/details of what freebie/discount we get :)

Since we can't squeeze this in before the holidays, maybe we can craft a "Zaino Gift Certificate" that our significant others can give us in lieu of the actual product.:confused:

You can refer to the prior Zaino GP thread** for additional information and FAQs/suggestions, or feel free to ask in this one.

Lemme know!

* if that link doesn't work, send an email to [email protected] with the subject zainogp. This one is NOT an autoresponder like last time; I will send a group email once the details of the GP are finalized (and then will set up an autoresponder for additional people)

** don't click the email links in the old thread -- that email doesn't work anymore

Note: Don't contact Zaino directly re: this yet. We will receive the group purchase number and ordering instructions @ the beginning of January. This go-round is just to express interest.

Zaino Discount

Hi Worm:

Thanks for the work you have done regarding our Zaino group purchase! It is a great product.

I have a comment on the discount provided by Sal. I am a repeat Zaino customer living in NJ. To get the discount Sal will only ship out of the state of NJ (no real problem for me as I have friends in PA nearby). This is done to respect his distributors. Understood.

However, with the group purchase at over 70 people from this forum surely we must be able to do a bit better than a free z7 with the order. My totals always seem to be $100+. In fact my last order was for $149.45. This makes our "discount" about 5.3% off retail. I know that this is better than nothing, but if Sal makes Joisey boys buy through distributors there must be a commission paid to these distributors, and this has to be more than 5%. Ergo, if all of the sales are out-of-state, as they must be, and they all bypass the distributors, I would think we could do (significantly) better on the discount.

Also, with the free z7 offer there is no incentive for us to buy more product. No matter how much we buy, it is still the same "1 free z7". If there were greater "discounts" at higher purchase levels, I think Sal would get more sales...

As an alternative, could the forum become a distributor taking a small commission on sales to support the site? In this scenario, everyone wins. We get better discounts, and the site realizes revenue.

Just some thoughts... :D

tjwid and ifeldman:

Read my post above, as I think the z7 situation is explained there. Zaino is indeed a good, if not pricey, product. I just hope Sal Zaino realizes that there are other products out there, too, that get the job done with the same or similar results.


BTW, the leverage this forum had in its latest Zaino purchase was on the order of 140 + buys. And all Sal offers us is one z7... :confused:
